If you find yourself in a situation where harmful chemicals are released near you, whether indoors or outdoors, then the best way to prevent exposure is to immediately evacuate from the area to somewhere with fresh air. Do not return to the area that has be chemically contaminated until it is properly cleaned and assessed by experts.

That is why you should seek medical attention, call Poison Help at (800) 222-1222, or contact your poison control center if you believe you or a loved one have been exposed to toxic chemicals due to a spill, product defect, or manufacturer error.

Even if you don’t have any injury symptoms right after exposure, you should still be assessed by a doctor to make sure you haven’t suffered any internal injuries or contracted illnesses that might have delayed symptoms.
